Joseph Black, a Scottish chemist and physician, first identified carbon dioxide in the 1750s. Since then, scientists have been exploring ways to measure this common gas.
Nowadays, 85% of photovoltaic (PV) cells are made from silicon. Additionally, these cells can be created in volume by assuming wafer creation methods founded by the Integrated Circuit (IC) business.
The research of many scientists aims to ensure that our planet is maintained to benefit future generations, monitoring and measuring the environment over long time periods with costly equipment.
Although wind turbines are huge, generating electricity through the turning of their 79 m long rotors, they could not function without the many minuscule sensors which are constantly monitoring their health, allowing them to function in extreme environmental stresses.
Sensors are now very common in electronic consumer products, as they are becoming cheaper and smaller, leading to novel applications.
Wearable devices are now at the center of most discussions associated with the Internet of Things (IoT), and the full variety of novel abilities universal connectivity enables.
Factory automation and overall efficiency justifiably receive a lot of focus, not only for the upside benefit realizable from even small increases in output, but also from the equally important potential to reduce or eliminate the severe costs of equipment downtime.
Dramatic improvements in high-performance, cheap and easy-to-use sensors for light, pressure, sound, and temperature have led to significant advances in the monitoring field.
Autonomous vehicles have recently been receiving lots of attention, especially due to research advancements by large corporations such as Google.
With the rising trend of the Internet of Things, commonly known as IoT, remote sensors that are capable of tracking the environment and relaying the data back to an Internet connect host system are becoming increasingly common.
